This is what they say about us
"About to graduate - and then?! A couple of months ago, I had no idea what exactly I wanted to do or what I wanted from my first job. The broad range of training courses, conversations, appointments with my coach and the rest of the guidance from HPA ensured that I was able to make carefully-considered decisions and that I was able to start work only 1 month after I graduated!"
Kiki Jansen | Alumni - Senior Consultant at Badenoch + Clark
"I can remember my first day at HPA: the job interview training. Twelve graduates, all suited up: it felt like the first day at school! There was a certain tension; a kind of contest. It was immediately clear that everyone was ambitious, wanted to get good grades and build a good CV. After a while, it turned out that everyone shared a certain insecurity about their future. That surprised me; weren't these the hip young people who were so sure of themselves? I immediately felt at home. Both the coaches and the potentials at HPA have taught me that it's good to be critical at a job interview, that you also need to know what you don't like. It's good to look for what it is you do appreciate. Just two weeks after graduating, I had a job. Did I expect that? No. Could I have done it without help? Probably not. It's cool to know you're not alone, and even cooler if you get a bit of extra motivation along the way."

"In 2016 I registered with the High Potential Academy in Amsterdam via a reference. Because you can never start too early with making connections and expanding your network, I was directly interested in the offer of the HPA. I immediately noticed that HPA asked the right questions to show me what I was looking for. As I have a Business Administration background with a master in Strategy & Organization, I was interested in all kinds of companies and functions. Through interviews, job orientation-training, job application-training and an in-house day at Adyen, I figured out what I was looking for in my professional life. The insights Jasper and his team have given me and the contacts I have gained from the sessions are so valuable to me. In the end, the regular contact with HPA has given me a fantastic job at ZIVVER. Because I now work at ZIVVER, my contact with HPA has become even more intensive. The connection with HPA is not for a moment, but for your whole life! Regardless of your area of interest, I would recommend this route to everyone."

"I thought it would be good for me to reflect a little more about the choices I made. During my bachelor's I was prepared for a master's degree in Supply Chain Management, but I also realized that I was interested in Marketing. It was difficult for me to form an idea of where I would be working later on. I just had the last meeting and what I liked about the trajectory so much is that it forced me to think about my own intrinsic motivation and choices without letting myself be influenced too much by what was expected of me by others. It brought a refreshing look at the things I do. I learned to listen to myself more and that why I’m now on the look for my first job in Brandmanagement!"
